I'm not really a fan of Lyons
1 February 2015 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

This is entertaining enough but I couldn't help thinking it could have been something a whole lot better. I assume this was dubbed after shooting and I'm wondering if Sue Lyon and Gloria Grahame actually did their own because they both seem so flat at times. I'm not really a fan of Lyons, anyway, and I thought she looked pretty rotten through most of this, just brightening up for a few set pieces. Fernando Rey is okay but even he seems a bit lacklustre here. The story is well enough told for the first half if seeming a bit predictable and then everything changes but is not handled too well and some of the developments strike as a bit silly. Nevertheless there is just enough to keep this going with some real nastiness and a fair bit of skin. Christian Hay as the man they all love is excellent.
